Gret Book - Check Edition Before Purchase
on 6 August 2008
This is a wonderful book to have around the house, excellent illustrations (photographs and diagrams) and great to mull over with your kids.
But BE WARNED: This book comes in several editions - hard back, paper back and compact. The cover picture is the same on each edition, price and availability vary considerably. Be sure you are buying the one you really want (our home DK collection now has the full size Ocean and Animal titles but a rather diminutive looking "compact" Earth). Don't spoil your enjoyment of this highly rated book by accidentally picking up the wrong edition.
